  • I live with my mom. She's going through a separation and she was a home maker so things are tight. I'm contributing. Meal support as well. I'm not going to judge a person for living with a parent. I think it's so peculiar. Family is SO important but only till 18. That's trying to destroy it in a sense, I think. Putting a time limit.

    Of course if you have re s so s to move out. But it's time space cost efficient so I don't see the nosing upwards =)

    Anyhow if I like a person I like them. Have g good relations with family isn't going to turn me away... with all the ugliness in the world this is not a deal breaker. No way.

  • Probably. With more than 30% of millennials still living with their parents after graduation with a job, not dating because of where they live can shrink your dating pool to non-existent.

    Also, it save them about 1-2k a month. A significant amount.

    • Interesting and surprising statistic. I was surprised when I read this was for millennials that graduate even with jobs. Good to know considering this will probably be my case lol hope this is a true statistic 😄

  • It's not a big deal, why do people care so much, life doesn't happen the way people think it should, the problems we have with moving out are all on society, not always the individual. I need more than my own two hands to count howany times I've heard people say that they can't find work after going to school, so many people having to adjust their lives or taking another risk, going out on a limb just to survive, and what do we get from it? > Shit in from every corner of society, from people close to us, from others that don't know us, from television and social media, and from societal expectations. Fuck all these expectations and let people live their lives, there's no harm in living with parents, there's no harm in relying on others because you haven't found your break yet.

  • I lived at home until I got married. With the exception of the time I was in the military. I, unfortunately, got into debt on credit cards bigtime when I was young. I was able to keep my credit perfect but at a serious cost. I was never able to get out from under it and it took me a long time to pay it off. I could not afford to live on my own.

  • Yes I would (like every other guy who voted on this poll before I did).

    Times are tough, jobs that pay enough for an adult to live on their own without a bunch of Craigslist roommates are in short supply.

    Therefore I am a realist.

    I mean, I still do, since this economy sucks. But it's not like I'm not doing anything. I work, attend graduate school, and teach myself programming. And if I have time, I'm thinking of learning guitar.

    I'm not that stereotypical mooch who does nothing but play video games or smoke weed.

  • Yes, I don't see the issue with it. A lot of big cities in the US are ridiculously expensive now. Why not save money living with parents until the relationship gets serious then find a place together?
    I also must add that if she's working I do hope that she contributes towards some expenses.

  • It depends on the reason she lives with her parents and if I date her just for fun or for a long relationship. I would date, but I would never marry a woman who lives with her parents to avoid being a housewife. I wouldn't do every home task for her. For example, I love cooking, but I hate cleaning, so I wouldn't marry a woman who lives with her parents because she is waiting to find a husband who cooks and cleans for her.

  • Hmm Maybe however i'm in my early twenties, I know its normal for people around my age to still live with their parents, but the age is getting older and older, my boyfriend is in his 30's so- if he still lived with his parents I wouldn't lik it.

  • Sure. What I care about are his personality, his body, his looks, his drive, and how he treats me. Where he lives is of only minor importance to me. Now, I'm not attracted to fat losers who spend all day playing video games in mom's spare room, but if the guy has something going for him, I'm fine with that.

  • Yes, unless they're jobless and play video games all day. It isn't easy to live on your own because it's so expensive. But if they're not actively saving, going to college or doing something to change this, they're not going to.

  • Depends on why they are there. I know plenty of guys that stay home to care for their parents or help their parents pay bills or something, which I find commendable. But if you're someone making minimum wage and you just don't feel like growing up, then, no, I would not.
